Bibbidi Bobbity Boutique @ Disney Springs, Orlando, Florida

It has often been said that there is so much more to do in Florida than Disney but when it’s your first visit to the sunshine state and your young daughters are six and eight years old then, believe me, Disney is the very first and second and third thing on their minds!  What Disney do better than anyone is to make people feel good about themselves and, as their saying goes “Make Dreams Come True”.  With this is mind, we discovered Bibbidi Bobbity Boutique – Disney’s unique beauty salon where little girls are transformed from head to toe into little princesses.  What an experience for all of us it would become!

The Makeover

We arrived at Cinderella’s Fairy God Mother’s salon at the World of Disney Store in Downtown Disney with our two princesses  in the making who were promptly whisked away by the Fairy God Mother’s Assistants to firstly choose a gown each to change into.  

Next for the transformation …

From the 3 packages on offer we chose the ‘Castle’ package to include hairstyling, shimmering makeup and nails plus a surprise for our little ones later on.

The salon was busy (you might expect) but our daughters enjoyed a full hour's uninterrupted salon session at one of their many  transformation stations, adorned with a full length mirror and vanity lights, where they were pampered and preened until they genuinely believed life as a Royal had begun!  To complete the look, a tiara was placed upon their regal bonnet.

Incidentally, it’s worth mentioning here there is also a ‘Knight’s’ package for brave boys to endure hairstyling without the shimmering makeup and painted nails but completed with a mighty sword and shield to fend off any unsuspecting dragons.

I must say the Fairy Godmother’s Assistants were brilliant.  They chatted constantly to our daughters at every stage of their transformation and nothing was too much trouble.  I took photos of them constantly during the process and never once felt in the way.

When the new look was complete we had that surprise in store for the two of them … a portrait session to remember.

Photography Session

The session took place at the Downtown Disney Photographic Studio just a 2 minute walk from the salon where their lady photographer took about 50 photos from which to chose.  As we had already purchased a Disney Photopass these pictures were uploaded to our account for later.  Included in the session was a 6” x 8” and four 6” x 4” colour photos.

All in all, this was one of so many memorable moments of our first Orlando villa rental experience for all of us and, as with a majority of Florida attractions terrific value for money.
